All are welcome!  It is not necessary to be registered for the ACS conference in order to attend the event.  

Please RSVP to Nikki Erinakis at nikkie@chem.ucla.edu or (310) 206-4409.  

Please plan to join us for this great opportunity to meet our faculty, students, and researchers to learn about the exciting research being conducted at UCLA. The event will include a poster session by 55 of our postdoctoral researchers and graduate students showcasing their current research projects, and light refreshments will be served. The hotel is just across the street from the San Diego Convention Center. Everyone is welcome to attend! 

At this year's conference, organic chemistry professor Dr. Heather Maynard, who holds UCLA’s Dr. Myung Ki Hong Endowed Chair in Polymer Science, will receive the American Chemical Society (ACS) 2019 Bioconjugate Chemistry Lectureship Award at the Bioconjugate Chemistry Lecturer Symposium. Read more about the prestigious honor here.   

The UCLA Reception and Showcases at previous ACS conferences, in San Diego in 2016 and San Francisco in 2017, were very well-attended and we expect this year's to be just as successful.
